Hmm, I can't seem to find it. I can probably remember most of it though. Da Vinci for Italy, Mozart for Austria, etc. It wasn't limited to just "good guys" though, as I had Stalin for Russia and Mao for China. It was an interesting project!

Enough about that though, who is the frontrunner for the next Pope? Will they name him John Paul III? I'm definitely not an expert on the Catholic religion. :-o

Not necessarily. Each Pope selects his own name mostly to pay honor to past popes. There have been popes named Clement, Innocent, Urban, and so on. He may choose to be John Paul III but as I understand he makes the decision, its not made for him. And I'm not sure who is the frontrunner but I know that the cardinals will soon get together to vote on who will be the next pope. There are always about 2 or 3 candidates I think

I heard a Nigerian man, Francis Arinze, was flown in to wherever the decision will be made, as he's a frontrunner for next Pope.

The pope always choses a name, usually a former pope name. But if its that Nigerian guy he could buck the trend and go wth something original.

Truly a great man, its sad to see him go, but his detoriorating health indicated that it was his time. He helped urge the Poland solidarity movement and lead to the fall of Communism, he forgave the man who shot him, and he helped unify all nations, religions, and ethnicities.

Cardinal Arinze is considered a frontrunner, however Vatican insiders tend to think that the next Pope will be an older man.... Coming off JPII's record setting term of 26+ years, most seem to think the next Pope will be a transitional Pope, meaning they will nominate a man in his late-60's/early-70's.... More speculation is that they will try to return to tradition and elect an Italian...

The fact that Arinze has flown to Rome doesn't mean anything, as all Cardinals are in the process of flying to Rome, where they will participate in Conclave... Which literally means they will be locked in the Sistine Chapel, the doors will be sealed with wax, and they will cast ballots as to who will be the next Pope until one man is decided upon....
